Heads up for others who have donor conceived children. Just found out that the census is asking for country of birth details of the biological other half of all children (not just the details of where the legal parents were born).
So if you have used donor eggs or sperm, by law you are required to provide information about the donor.
" This information is collected from everybody, even children whose parents have already provided their country of birth. This avoids making assumptions about family relationships."

Hi Cabdiceo I called census helpline as I am a sole parent of donor conceived twins. They said that I did not need to put any details under the father as they don't have one. Let me know if anyone else has had different advice.

I will be putting down what is on DDs birth certificate (which is my DH). If it's good enough for birth, deaths and marriages it's more than good enough for the census.

I wouldnt be mentioning a thing about it, can't see how they would know or find out.

Candiceo and i have two mums each... so.... they might guess there's been other involvement ☺ I will look at the wording carefully on the night, as my bub doesn't have a 'father' - he has a donor.
I might start a general thread on the census later.
